Jacqueline and Teresa haven’t spoken in almost a year because of what happened on the ‘RHONJ’ season finale. Now we finally know why Jacqueline didn’t attend the season three reunion! Here are the inside details.

This season’s finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey saw the culmination of the ultra-dramatic Posche fashion show — and the end of Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice‘s friendship.

The show, which featured the confrontation between Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and her former strip-club boss, made Jacqueline finally see what she believed were the true colors of supposed-friend Teresa.

“After the Posche fashion show, I had a nervous breakdown,” Jacqueline said on last night’s episode. “It was just overwhelming with friendships ending.”

The final moments of the show revealed that Teresa and Jacqueline hadn’t seen each other since that fateful night.

RHONJ star Kathy Wakile recently told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that “[Melissa] wasn’t really a dancer. She worked in a club and she was kind of like a Hooters girls, a hostess, a bar maid. She wasn’t a dancer. And even if she had been, it doesn’t matter because I know her now. She’s a great mom and wife, and they have a beautiful life. She wasn’t a murderer. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it.”

Are you surprised by the reason that Jacqueline and Teresa are no longer friends, HollywoodLifers?

Wow…just getting this series in the UK. Teresa is really a shady and shoddy friend. She stabbed both Caroline and jacqeline and really also Melissa in the back. She seems petty, jealous and removed from reality. At first I thought it was because she was in an emotional abusive relationship with Joe but now wondering if she has a mental health disorder. Does she not have any self awareness? Why does she think she never does anything wrong? Read some of the pro Teresa comments on this site and others and seriously believe its either Teresa herself pretending to be other people or her misguided friends…so sad to witness her become car crash tv. Praying for her family..feel sorry for her brother Joe

I THINK CAROLINE, KATHY, AND JAQUELINE ARE VERY SWEET GENUINE PEOPLE… T TERESA IS FAKE AND MELISSA IS SNEAKY… IF TERESA WON’T BE FILMING WITH THEM THAN THAT MUST BE KATHY ALL IN MELISSA FACE

not surprised, jacqueline seems real, with a real heart, soul, morals………all of which theresa wouldn’t know if it smacked her in the face. if it isn’t happening to theresa then it isn’t happening. i am sincerely scared for her little girls……they hear everything even if they are too young to know, soon they will piece everything together and work things out for themselves and to realise what sort of mother they have will be devestating. i would stay as far away from this person as possible, she has a poisonous personality and will affect everyone that comes in contact with her…….i suppose that is why we watch?

Jacqueline the two faced back stabber. Shows zero loyalty to anyone most of all her family. Why would anyone want to be friends with this BORING person…How and why they keep her and her BORING husband on the show they add nothing but a BORING plot line. Jacquline always tries to play innocent and like she is so sweet. Melissa Gorga is a manipulative, vindictive, backstabber and so jealous of Teresa. Joe Gorga is a pathetic, stupid tool that doesn’t notice that his wife, her family, the Manzos, and the Laurita’s, all worked together to turn him against his sister and brother in law. He is definitely not a real man. He sold out his only sister for fame. He lacks the balls to put his wife in place and have her show respect and loyalty to his family!!! Teresa was setup by Melissa, Kathy, Caroline and Jacqueline they are all so jealous of Teresa’s success. They all copy and try to do everything Teresa has done. Kathy and her husband talking about sex GROSS the thought makes me want to throwup!!! Heres any other couple no one wants to watch on TV. Melissa and Joe again coping Teresa with all the sex talk and nicknames. What happened to Caroline she was the BEST in season 1 now she is just an angry old lady with nothing but negativity to add to every scene she is in. Get Rid of her too…

Also, thank goodness you finally saw the light about Jacqueline, she was never your friend! The fact that she received those texts and preferred to give Melissa a heads up and not you speaks volumes about her loyalty!! She had none towards you!! Off with Her Head! lol

When you are an innocent bystander who holds no grudges towards anyone and you are then confronted — that someone you care about is going to be set-up your first priority is to the person being set-up!! I don’t think for a minute that Jacqueline got ANY PLEASURE out of the possible culprit being Teresa! It caused her a great deal of pain evidently that Teresa overheard Mr. Baldy plotting this..which if true did make her a guilty party in all of this. You didn’t question why Teresa went to an outside parlor to get made-up for the Fashion Show with Kim D.??? When for years viewers see her at home getting ready!! I immediately thought something was going to happen. Kim D.’s facial expression when Johnny (Mr. Baldy) was informing Teresa about Melissa working for him?? It was sooo staged, and Teresa is very “camera-aware” but a terrible actress as she stepped out of the room not wanting to hear anything about her sister-in-law. If she was any kind of loving person, she would have immediately told Kim D. to shut the f. up and stop persisting with the supposed “dirt” on Melissa, and also told management about the “trouble-maker” they had working for them! for 1 day???? dahhh this all seemed staged for the SEASON-FINALE!! MAYBE ALL PLANNED OUT BY SOMEONE….Who is the question!! Kim D.–Teresa — Mr. Baldy — Joe G. — (why was Joe G.’s brother at the fashion show??) Maybe Teresa’s husband didn’t tell Teresa but directed her promising she would “get her revenge on Melissa” without knowing anything?? that’s why Teresa looks so innocent as she swears on everything holy she had nothing to do with setting Melissa up. Ask her if her husband did, and to then swear on her children!! nahh I would cringe honestly, because Ms. Teresa probably would just to win the public backing, and her kids would pay the price. Anyway….Melissa and Joe along with the rest of the cast are good people, with good families. Teresa has a lot of soul searching to do, along with dumping her husband!

Teresa is not an angel and I don’t see why everyone can’t see that. If you watch it she contridicts herself all the time, she will say something and go I didn’t say that. Teresa is the bully and needs to go find another show to get on with Danielle.

You are so right. Teresa’s “fame” with the books has gone to her head (at the expense of her former friends). She is no angel, in fact, she looks like a devil much of the time. She wouldn’t know how to tell the truth if it hit her in the head (at least not when it makes her look bad).

Plain and simple, Teresa was set up by Caroline, Jacqueline, Lauren & Kim D. Angelo clearly stated that Jonny called him, not Teresa or Kim D, so how do we know Teresa had a hand in this. Kim D stated she was supset with Melissa for talking about her store and promoting another posh and trying to have that posh fashion show on RHONJ instead of KimD. They knew what was going to go down but not one of them mentioned anything to Melissa as her “friends”!!Teresa didn’t know anything was going on and clearly was set up by Kim D. as well. Melissa Gorga was seen in plain sight how she manipulates her husband against his sister, and Kathy, as usual, knew what was going on, but at the end, ganged up against Teresa!! Nevertheless, Teresa stood alone, and took accusations, insults, and manipulations from everyone! Jacqueline ended up being the biggest hypocrite!! I would never want her as a friend!! All of her fake crying and staged angry rants are not believable. Bravo needs to get rid of Caroline, Kathy, Jacqueline, and Melissa and bring new housewives to film with Teresa. Many viewers won’t watch

Over it

Posted at 1:57 PM on September 24, 2012  

I totally agree with you. Jacqueline’s “friend” who texted her was a bravo producer, who was later fired over the incident. The producer clued Jacqueline in that Melissa was going to be confronted by that Angelo guy, so Jacqueline knew about it ahead of time, yet never said anything to Melissa. And she let Theresa take the blame.

Teresa should have said something to Melissa if she didn’t havr a hand in it. And not for a minute do I think Kim D didn’t have a hand in this, Teresa has a poor homelife and she will need friends if she ever gets up the nerve to dump that bum of a husband.
